Displaying special characters in XML Publisher



We are using the XML Publisher in EBS The requirement is to be able to display special characters, like '&',' " ', in reports, pdf output.

I have tried using CDATA, but it isn't working.

    This is the entry in the XML output of the report: <COL_3_2><![CDATA[BEMETA DESIGN & s.r.o.]]></COL_3_2>

    When loading the xml in word (BI Publisher Template Builder for Word build 87) as data source and previewing in PDF format, the result is displayed correctly as BEMETA DESIGN & s.r.o.

    When running the report in EBS, the result is displayed as <![CDATA[BEMETA DESIGN & s.r.o.]]>


Howdy, Stranger!
